Veganuary starts TOMORROW!!! Are you excited? I know I am! In order to help you start your day off right, let me share with you one of my absolute favourite breakfast recipes: Tofu Scramble with Potatoes.
What I am sharing with you can either be eaten as-is or be used as a base recipe. Often times, I do eat this just as-is, but I prefer adding a leafy green vegetable, peppers, and onions to the mix.
Without further ado, here is:
Now for some delicious pictures of the process, as well as some tips. And a video.
Okay, so first we got these two cute little potatoes:
I chop ’em up, throw ’em into a pan (it’s got a high edge, but you don’t need one of those to make Tofu Scramble) with some water. I normally would cover it after I turn on the heat, but the cover was in the dishwasher, so I was like ha. ha. ha. It can stay uncovered.
After that, I moved onto the tofu. I first drain the tofu by cutting along the edge of the packaging. I do NOT cut it all open; I cut it open ENOUGH to allow for the draining of the water, but not for the tofu to fall out. Once it’s drained, I put it on a plate with a paper towel, pat it try, and then cut it into slabs. Then I cut it again into smaller pieces, just before chopping it roughly.
Once that’s done, I pour it into the pan with the potatoes, stir it a bit, and then pour on my spices: nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. The ONLY spice I do not put on initially is turmeric.
I stir until the spices disappear into the dish. I wait a few seconds before adding even more nutritional yeast, as well as the turmeric. I stir again and watch as the dish turns a nice yellow colour.
After that, you’re done! You just need to take it out and move it to your plate.
For this particular tofu scramble, I ended up adding some kale, peppers, and onions afterward, although I recommend adding your vegetables around the same time as the potatoes, if you were to do the same.
I actually really like serving tofu scramble with a side of baked beans (vegan, of course), veggie sausage, and toast with a bit of coconut oil (which is basically nature’s butter, oh my gosh, it is SO GOOD).
